Jonathan Wright focuses on transforming raw data, often containing sensitive information, into useable extracts for research analysis. He collaborates with a diverse group of stakeholders throughout the transformation process of turning datasets into research products that can be used by researchers, policymakers, and administrators for analysis and planning.  

Dr. Wright graduated from the University of Oregon with a Ph.D. in Linguistics, using empirical studies to explore language processing. As a postdoctoral researcher at Penn State, he worked on behavioral and neuroscience studies investigating language processing across the lifespan. His interests involve the processing of qualitative and quantitative research data and the application of natural language processing and machine learning to the investigation of a variety of research questions and needs.
